CHRISTMAS WONDERS & BEYOND
Christmas is Coming - Regardless of the Pandemic!
“Your donation to Kerr Street has really blessed my family this year. Thank you so much!! This really means a lot to us – especially because we come across a lot of struggles this year. Being a single Mom unable to work because of a cancer diagnosis it’s overwhelming to receive these gifts. God is so good!!”
– Christmas Wonders Recipient
For more than 17 years the Kerr Street Mission “Christmas Wonders and Beyond” program has rallied the community to ensure families in need are able to celebrate this special season. We are extremely grateful for the love, compassion and generosity of the community. Together you have helped us give many families across Oakville a very special Christmas blessing.
This year we hope will be no different! 2020 has brought so many uncertainties to everyday life with family gatherings, weddings, funerals, and events being put on hold or cancelled. But we can say with certainty that Christmas is coming and we are working hard to make sure everyone will have a special meal on the table and a gift under the tree.
We know there are people in Oakville that struggle to provide the basic necessities for themselves and their children, and because of the COVID pandemic many more are now in the same situation. Our Food Market statistics show a 58% increase in the use of our food bank since March this year. So please consider donating so we can respond to each and everyone who needs our support.
Our Christmas Wonders program provides toys, pyjamas and gift cards for each member of the family. Last year we were able to increase our gift card value to $100 per person and bring wonder and joy to over 1,500 people. This year we are excited about blessing families in need again.
Our Christmas Wonders and Beyond Program runs from November 1st to December 31st.
